Science Teacher Demonstrated the Wonders of Science by Lighting His Student’s Hand on Fire

Science is awesome! Learn how a Science teacher lit his student’s hand on fire without getting hurt.

Science is a very interesting subject at the same time very strenuous and challenging.

Some love this subject so much and others may find it boring.

But When a teacher knows how to keep his students interested on their lessons then it could be a source of a higher level of learning and participation.

Most kids are fond of superheroes especially those with super powers.

Though those super heroes from comic books and movies are just fictional characters, this science teacher made it possible for a student to hold a fire on the latter’s hand without any damage or burn.

The teacher filled soap bubbles with methane gas and then lit it on fire while a student is touching it.

Here is the principle of the science experiment. The solution is made up of water soap and methane gas. According to skeptical Science, this odorless gas is one carbon molecule surrounded by four hydrogen molecules. Water added with soap would produce bubbles once air is introduced.

If you put methane gas instead, the bubbles that will be formed will contain the gas which is flammable. Now when you grab a handful of this soapy water bubble and introduce fire, your hand will be on fire but having your hand wet with water will protect your hand from being burned as it sticks on to the liquid or solution. Methane gas is very light so the fire would go upward to the air thus minimizing contact with your hand. Keep in mind that methane gas is lighter than the air.

Gigantic Gas Cloud on Collision Course With Our Galaxy At 700,000 Miles Per Hour

In case you didn’t know, a gigantic gas cloud with the power of 2 million suns, is heading fast towards the Earth as we speak. It’s speeding at 700,000 miles per hour.

The headline alone can induce anyone into a panic. This is not a drill. It is true that a giant gas cloud with the power of 2 million suns is speeding our way at the ghastly speed of 700,000 miles per hour. Before you go hysterical, the Smith Cloud won't reach the Milky Way galaxy until the thirty million years. You can relax for now.

This is the Smith Cloud visualized in comparison to the Earth's moon.

The Smith Cloud, named after its discoverer Gail Smith, was first detected in Netherlands. It is full of sulfur that is said to be over 11,000 light-years long and 2,500 light-years wide and contains the mass of about a millions suns. This gigantic gas cloud was likely spat out from the outer edges of our galaxy. This is pretty much a case of "what goes up must come down," said the Hubble Space Telescope astronomers.
